Meet Up — The Final Update!

Posted: February 25, 2009 in Uncategorized

Okay, it’s good to be back, although it’s hard to get back in the YAP game especially if I have a ton of email to read.

Anyway I just read a few messages regarding the Meet Up that Bhuwisit first propositioned. And yes, finally he did leave a comment & sent me an email. More about that later…

Although what I really want to talk about is another email I received from another would be meet up participant who feels the same way I do. That most of those who are coming aren’t really sure or would be there just to find out who’s who.

Anyway, Bhuwisit’s first proposition was like that & it went like this:

Where: Havana Cafe – Greenbelt, outside tables
Date: March 9, 2009 Time: 8-10PM

If you show up, don’t even volunteer your real name or YA name, so except for the ones with pictures, it’ll be interesting.

It’s all up to you… you don’t even need to RSVP. Yours truly may even spring for a round o’ drinks and pulutan.


So it is now:

Havana Cafe – Greenbelt, outside tables
March 10, 2009 Time: 8-10PM

And with another twist, NO PHOTOS please. As in his own words, this will just be a small informal gathering for curiosity’s sake.

So, nothing more, nothing less, those who would want to come are welcome, you may opt to identify yourself or keep it anonymous. Those who are scared of something, should just come & not identify themselves.

And this is I hope would be the final update to this proposition. And I will definitely email Jonas to organize a meet up this year. And as the last one was on July of 2008, I would propose to have a second one also this coming July 2009, as I would be in Manila at that time. Yahoo!

I know that one of our well-loved? YAPPERs (by the sweet name of Bhuwisit) had a Question regarding a Meet Up, a blind-meet up even, one where you can come & not even reveal who you are (if you wish).

But for the life of me, I couldn’t find that Q. Well of course it would have been reported.

Fortunately, I have saved a copy of it & I will paste it below.

Now it will continue on, at least on this YAP Blog, even if someone did not like it in YAP itself.

Here it is & the answers along with it at the time that I copied it.

So who’s coming??? And sino manlilibre??

YAPPIES, who’s up for a meet up?

Yours truly may even spring for a round o’ drinks and pulutan.

Additional Details

Regardless, here’s the proposition:

Where: Havana Cafe – Greenbelt, outside tables
Date: March 9, 2009
Time: 8-10PM

If you show up, don’t even volunteer your real name or YA name, so except for the ones with pictures, it’ll be interesting.

It’s all up to you… you don’t even need to RSVP.

good idea!

time and place?

by Mrs. Jaimee Harmony OOH ☮MidEast

Sure! Let me know where and when!


by Anne C

i honestly think a lot of regulars wont be able to come (or would choose not to come and keep their anonymity). Busy scheds, layo locations, baka troll, or maybe talagang privy lang sila, etc
ei, dati i previously asked four yappers na i like and respect (to see them JUST on cam), pero i was turned down…siguro they have their own reasons..isang yapper lang nakita ko here, si eezy jex (via webcam).
I stopped asking na rin, I’ve already accepted the fact na we’re in here just for the fun. I missed the YAPpasko, ‘heard twas fun.

by Beetlle

would like to, but highly impossible for me to attend. 🙂

by Flappy Paddle Gearbox

If in the East Coast, I probably can attend.
How about web conference instead? XD

by kamagong

Make it SoCal and there’s a good chance I can attend.

by Doctor J

Good idea.

Wasn’t there a meet-up sponsored by Yahoo? Maybe Yahoo should organize so we can finally greet each other in person.

If it is in a private location, I will bring 2 bottles of my favorite Chilean red wines.

by Juan C

a good on-line chat would do…

by brecht

anne c does have a point. but actually meeting up would be cool though

by J@ps

I am, but like the rest of those who are currently abroad, we cannot just jump on a plane & be there.

Jonas once said that they will have another one this year. So we should all email him. Hopefully it will be on a day that I will be back home as I will be visiting this year.

See you in Cebu =)

Let me check my schedule..

count me in 🙂

by yuanyuan

I’ll definitely come if I’m nearby. But as it is…….

by butterme…

treat mo ba? If you will be paying then I’m in.



Some of you already know that I made a follow up YAP Q, regarding this idea of a meet up which was started by Bhuwisit. And that too was reported & deleted, I am just waiting to be suspended once again, so that Jonas would indeed really check more deeply with the YAPPER who reported this one & of course I would ask him to look into the one who reported the original meet up Q of Bhuwisit.

Below is a copy of that Q & the Answers given, at least until I last read it, then at the end I would include those in my inbox which will indicate the name of the answerer & the first part of their answer.

Here it is:

If there is a YAP meet up, would you go?

What if somebody has set up a date & a place for a YAP meet up in Makati?

What if some people have even offered to buy a round of drinks or hors d’oeuvre?

One where you wouldn’t even have to reveal who you if don’t want to.

If you are free, would you go? Why or why not?

i’d love to go —- but there is a big problem. i am 11,000 kms. away
from Makati.

If I am free and I live near that area and if bvttermelon will be there, I am going

I would go but I fear a retaliation attack against me because some don’t like a few of my questions and answers in YAP.

Some people don’t know how to separate real life from YAP life.
Its best for me not to attend for security reasons. You never know who your dealing with on the internet.

My opinion.

i would love to go if i could. it would be nice to see how yappers are like in person.
I couldn’t…

YES! Let’s met up!!!!! I will bring printed copies of Certificate of Attendance.
Hummm…sige 1 round of drink ang sa akin….kanino ang pulutan?
It’s much better not to reveal the identity para naman may mystery pa din.
Joe by Joe
Yeah, I’d go. There are a few people here I’d like to pinch off their head. I doubt I will get an invite.
oh sure, we could wear a Mardi Gras mask (lol)

That would be interesting.

I’d go.

Sorry, Japs, no can do. If that would have been summertime (US summer), maybe we could. My cousin is sure to go home right after her graduation in May and I’m still debating if I would too.

Anyway, I hope you get a good attendance like the previous meet-ups. Whatever happened to the one proposed to be held in California?

Shall any one of the following regulars be able to confirm his attendance [jacinto luis, aref, or JD] i guess, i would wanna be there at all costs
I would go. In fact, I have asked how we will be able to see each other if the meeting point is “outdoor chairs” of Havana, and there are lots of people at that time.

Hopefully, more people categorically say yes.

i would if circumstances allow me to. there are many interesting characters here that I should like to see in person.

These are the ones that I got from my inbox:
